On the female Grad Card I used half pearls for the buttons and the Scallop Trim Corner Punch for the collar similar to my Suit Dress Card . The diploma is a scrap of Whisper White rolled and tied with a ribbon. To make the cap look 3D I punched a large tag and folder the tapered part of the tag under and used it to attach the cap to the card. The stamp set is Well Scripted.
On the Male Grad card I used Olive Satin Ribbon to make a tie similar to my Father's Day Card from a few years ago. The cap is a 2” x 2” square attached with some dimensionals. The stamp set is Sincere Salutations.
To make the tassels I wrapped some crochet cotton around 3 fingers then tied it in the centre with a separate piece of string. Hold the tassel by the two strings you just tied and finger comb the loops downward. Tie an extra string around the loops about 1/8” down from the top and trim the bottom ends of the loops to make your tassel.
